A loan of $1,925 helped a member to buy pigs and chickens.


Las Margaritas De Santa Catarina Group's story

Mrs. Gerónima R. Pérez, 45, is married. She did not have the opportunity to attend school. She has five children one of whom is studying. She is a housewife but also has a business that generates income for family support. She’s been raising animals, pigs and chickens in this case, for four years.

In order to increase business capital she decided to organize a group of women who do different productive activities: raising livestock, merchandise sales, basket weaving. The loan they are requesting will be used to buy pigs and chickens since this is Gerónima’s line of work. In the future they hope to have more pigs and chickens because this will make her production yield higher profits so that she can improve her profits and her family’s living condition.
